Possibly a little, but I'd avoid getting that card - it's rather bad.

Go with the latest gen of tech (600 or 7000 series), or better yet, wait a few months for the generation after THAT to be released.

As I recall, those were all black edition. So you should be able to overclock it. Also, unlocking the 4th core is a possibility. So you may be able to squeeze extra performance out of that unit, if needed.

Lol don't get the 560 it's horsecrap, get the ti at least, there's a big performance difference, the 560 really performs low-end

as for bottlneck, a card like the 560SE? it wont, no.

Maybe something like a 7870 or a 660 ti and upwards willl start to see noticeable bottlneck
